Well, don't expect Pete Townsend to jump into the fray to protect the artistic integrity of Tommy or Quadrophenia. What's that? A CSI spin off for the United Arab Emirates? Sure, we can redo that one with arabic lyrics....

Also, it truly is hard to listen to a track off of Back in Black in isolation as it ruins the whole's "artistic integrity". I've got big balls, on the other hand, might work as a stand alone...

And the thematic continuity and artistic statment of a Garth Brooks' album cannot be disputed (although Chris Gaines might object).

There was something to be said for a well-planned 20 minutes of vinyl - side one of Abraxas being a particularly fine example of the craft.

The whole notion of the 'thematic' creation pretty much went out of the window with the arrival of the CD, equipped as it was with shuffle capability, freeing the listener from the tedium of having to get up and lift the tonearm on the record deck to skip tracks. Of course the skip function on the CD player was an absolute necessity to avoid the extra 30 minutes or so of recording time that was filled up with leftovers that in earlier days wouldn't have seen the light of day until some bright spark came up with the idea of doing a special edition outtakes album.
